Adorner in Silverlight
According to msdn: "Adorners are a special type of FrameworkElement, used to provide visual cues to a user. Among other uses, Adorners can be used to add functional handles to elements or provide state information about a control. "
And that's why I want them in Silverlight! :)

I found the adorners in WPF incomprehensible, and would find them of no use in silverlight. Better to add handles to a canvas and write the code the maipulate them.

It can be done now with Silverlight, just not in the WPF adorner layer way. See http://nokola.com/blog/post/2009/12/13/Adorners-in-Silverlight-Move-Size-Rotate-Custom-Mouse-Cursor.aspx for an example. However, it would be nice to have WPF style adorners in Silverlight.

I would like to ammend this by adding that it would be nice to have an Adorner Layer where elements could be 'floated' above all other elements in the XAML. I've been trying to use RenderTransform to do this for an element and the results are spectacularly wrong in a lot of cases.
